Richard Linklater began filming this story of a family’s evolution in 2002, and for the next 12 years followed the story of a boy (Ellar Coltrane) and his sister (Lorelei LInklater), who are coping with the challenges of growing up with two divorced parents (Patricia Arquette and Ethan Hawke). An unprecedented work of commitment, BOYHOOD is also a universally resonant chronicle of the passage of time. (U.S., 164m, 2013, IFC Films, DCP)
They should have been sworn enemies. But after the son of a Hamas leader became an informer for the Israelis, the Israeli secret ops agent who he worked with became a trusted friend. Mosab Hassan Yousef’s fervor against Israel was unquestionable, ultimately landing him in prison. But he began to see Hamas as a problem that escalated violence, not a solution, and agreed to spy on the Hamas elite. Nadav Schirman’s true story shows how he risked death while grappling with the perception that he had betrayed his own family and people, and how his relationship with the Israeli secret agent became one of unbreakable loyalty. (Germany-U.K.-Israel, 2014, 95m, DCP)

Jamie Hamilton's work evokes the many mechanical devices and designs by Leonardo Da Vinci. Creating both intricate sketches and large-scale steel and polycarbonate sculptures, Hamilton showcases the beauty and complexity of machinery and its connection to natural forms. "The architecture of my creations is born from the rhythms and dances of music and the physics of motion and structure. The sculptures are made from elemental forms. Cylinder, sphere, line, and plane in combination become progression of scale, spacings and repetitions. Art brings me to a meditation on issues of life, death, joy, despair, dialogue, and connection. It feeds the flames of my intellectual humanity, compassion, and hope in times of barbaric greed and social injustice." - Hamilton

Alison Keogh (www.alisonkeogh.com) uses natural materials to create unique pieces of sculpture. "This survey of work is a contemporary distillation of the New Mexico landscape into its essential elements, which aims to facilitate a reconnection to the land, thereby providing a new perspective, heightening an awareness of our connection to the earth. My work is a dialogue with the natural world, passing through my body, expressed through breath, mindful awareness, and repetitive gestures. I have always been an avid observer of the natural world, working from a place of focused attention and a visceral connection with clay." - Keogh
